The Texture of the Paper is thicker and
whiter and it takes the ink more freely than

Toe O. m the word Company is smaller
than the M. and other letters oi that word,
Co that a line extended from the top of the (),
to touch the top of the M would extend con

In the word United the letters-are nariow

parallel, the f inclining riiucl) more forward
than the i.

They are printed on a paper nearly similar
to that of-the counterfeit Five Doila> Note?

The following memorial fiom Samuel
Hopkins, was read in the House of Re
presentatives of this Commonwealth,
the 19th inft.
To the Speaker and Members of the Af
iembly of Penfylvania : ,
THE Subscriber apprehends he has at
great labour and expence much improved
on the common mode of mannfa&uring
pot and pearl allies, for which improve
ment the United States have granted him,
an exclusive right for a term of years.
The advantages over the former is set forth
by divers Certificates, one of which figncd
by David Rittenhoufe, Doctor Rush and
otheis,hath been published. By a Tarietyot
improvements in the application of the
principle, he apprehends he has so far Am
plify'd it, that at small expence it may be
conduced by women or children, altho'
larger the works greater the profits retak
ing in proportion. In a work that maycoft
about 12 dollars to be worked by a boy of
12, or 13 years old, with attention, may
make 150 weight of pearl allies, and with
good house ashes at gd per bulhel, wood at
20s per cord ; the pearl a(hes so made when
fold at the common price of 50s per hund
red,leaves about 40s for his week's labour.
The process is allowed to be easy and fami
liar, one of those small works is now -Sand
ing at his house in Arch Street No.43,and '
is fiee for infpe&ion to any that inclines
to visit it; he therefore wilhes a fuitabje
Committee may be appointed, one or more
members of each County to examine the •
fame, fee some experiments performed,
and should it be thought after every neces
sary examination, this improvement prefer
able to tlie former, and a geheral benefit
to this State, in bringing foiward this ma
• 9 o
nufacttiry in which little heretofore have
been done, he willing to relinquish his afor
faid right,as far as relates to Pennsylvania,
for such a compensation as the merits of it
may appear reasonable todefire.
2d Mo. 19, 1764.
A work that may cost about 300 dollars
when compleat with 4 large boilers worked
by 2 fires, 2 hands may make as much
pearl ashes as common black salts, perhaps
18 or 20 cwt. per week, it may require
about 7 cord of wood. The quantity
made in a certain given time, will always
depend on the attention of the workmen,
the size of the furnace, the quality of the
ashes, See. See.
The Committee appointed Feb. 25,laft,
| on the memorial of Samuel Hopkins,
made report, which was read as follows,
The Committee to whom was vefered
the application of Samuel Hopkins to the
Legislature, on the fubje& of an improve
ment discovered by him in the manufac
tury of pot and bearl ashes, beg leave to
to report —That they think favourably of
the prayer of the said applicant, and aie
of opinion that it will beadvantageous for
the State to have the mode invented by
him, rendered of general utility, by the
purchase of his exclusive privilidge in the
discovery, which they understand may be
effe&ed on very moderate terms; they
therefore reco|Timend the following resolu
Rtfolved, That a Committee be ap- ,
pointed to bring in a bill to grant the sum
